Uniquely, this episode is a 35 minute spoiler-filled critical appreciation of Michael Cimino’s notorious 1980 Western, Heaven’s Gate, starring Christopher Walken, Isabelle Huppert, Jeff Bridges and Kris Kristofferson. The review is a scene by scene defence of a movie that I believe has been unfairly derided by critics, and which will hopefully win a new audience when it is re-released in the UK on August 2nd 2013.
